This is no ordinary time in US-China relations. While President Trump lacks consistency, predictability, factuality on many areas in the US-China relationship, there is still a major lack of reciprocity in the US-China trade relationship. Even so, there still exists a viable pathway to a US-China relationship that is mutually beneficial and politically sustainable.

The approach to the current China-US disputes by the US administration is counterproductive. The US must not let falsehoods being spread about China interfere with the creation of productive strategies that would better solve these economic issues.

The future of Sino-American relations does not look bright from the way that America is currently approaching its disputes with China. In order to promote global peace and prosperity, China, the U.S., and the rest of the world must set aside ideological differences and focus on resolving shared issues and concerns.

High pressure from the United States hurts, but it won’t work in the long run. China doesn’t want the dispute to continue because there’s no good reason to damage two major economies and the world.

The future of China-U.S. relations turns on their ability to coexist within the same international system. Failure to do so could lead to confrontation and possible dismemberment of the international regime.

It is in Greece’s national interest to pursue continuity in its relations with China and even act as a strategic interpreter between Washington and Beijing, but this will demand creative strategic acuity as the United States will soon rank the world into friends and enemies.

A decoupling of China and the United States in the high-tech sector will reshape the international order, as competition becomes routine and more intense. Everyone in the global market will feel the impact.

The Amazon is burning, but the U.S. and China may be able to leverage their relationship with Brazil to coerce it into action - should they feel that it is in their best interest to do so.
